I would always love… To me, this is a show that I love returning to and I would love to return to it again. I would love to have more references to the original and more visitations from the original. I love that it’s the same universe. And to me, the most fun thing about it is looking at how it’s changed from then to now. And you can only do that if you actually look at how it was then. You can’t just do that looking at how it is now. So yeah, I would love more and more, and I hope that we can do that.how;
We are definitely going to see more Gossip Girl references in the upcoming show. He also revealed that there are going to be 4 seasons of the show;
“And I learned from the first one — in two seasons we got them out of high school. And we all felt like it was the right thing to do at the time. I think we looked back on it and we’re like, “Well, they could have stayed in high school a little bit longer.” This time around, each season is a semester. So they wouldn’t graduate until the end of Season 4.”
